Meet Adoptable Mina
Meet Adoptable Mina!
Mina is a 2.5 year old, female, 35-40lb, black with white trim, paraplegic, Formosan mixed breed. Mina is a sweet girl with so much zest for life and fun! She likes to be around other dogs and play, or just relax in the sun on the grass or on her bed out outside. She loves to cuddle on the couch or play with her toys on the floor. Mina is housebroken and she does well left alone in the home. She can be a bit shy at first when she meets you, but she warms up pretty good, more so after a few times or if she lives with you then she is really affectionate. Mina actually can walk around really well with her two front legs while dragging her back feet with booties on, and she loves to run around the yard at full speed when playing with other dogs or feeling frisky, and she really can move fast when she wants too. She quite a functional dog that likes to go for walks and light trail hikes in her wheelchair and she functions well in it for up to 2-3 hours a day if she’s out and about. She just shouldn’t really be using it more than 2-3 hours in a day. Mina can also use one of her back legs to hold herself up sometimes, but it’s not fully functional and the other leg is pretty much non functional. She was found in the mountains already in this paraplegic condition with dragging her back legs and she also had 3 of her puppies with her at the time. We believe an industrial truck hit her back end causing her condition and shortly after being rescued she did have a surgery on her back left hip where her femur was removed, and three to four months of rehabilitation done. She can still slowly over time gain more feeling back there, we will only know in time. Her puppies have already been adopted out. Mina would do best in a home with another dog or two that are playful and respectful, preferable someone who works part time, from home or retired, kids 8 and up or no kids, cats ok, that has a nice fenced in backyard as well with some grass or all grass. She really one of the sweetest and coolest dogs.
